Best yet to come from snowdrop

Progressive four-year-old Snowdrop will be ready for the big time in 12 months, according to trainer Tony Pike. The WS-owned and trained daughter of Pins continued her march through the grades at Trentham this afternoon with a clear-cut victory in a Rating 75 dash.
“She’s a gorgeous filly and she’s really starting to mature now,” the Cambridge horseman said. “This time next year she should be in the better sprint races.”
Snowdrop is bred to be exceptional as a daughter of WS’s multiple Group One winner Daffodil (No Excuse Needed). The winner of four of her nine starts, she enjoyed a dream run behind the pace and lengthened stride impressively in the straight to post her latest victory in a canter. “She had the 58.5kg and she’s not very big, bit she is just so tough,” successful rider Leith Innes said.
